Top Up With Shells Now And Save 25%
This year is all about providing a better experience for all on our beach again, and one of the ways we're doing this for you all is by going cashless at Ostend Beach 2018, with our currency: Shells.

Chances are, you've used cashless systems at a festival before, so we likely don't need to introduce the concept to you or how easy they are to use. However, unlike other events that may likely just list your cash as "money", "tokens", or "credit" on your wristband, we're of course going with a beach-y vibe, and naming them Shells.

You can already prepare for our party on sandy shores by topping up with Shells today, and reaping the rewards by saving 25% when you do it in advance of the event.

Shells are simple to use, and will already be topped up on your RFID wristband when you arrive at the festival site, so you won't have to bother about doing anything when you turn up to party. No waiting, no hassles.

But the best part is payment. Whenever you feel like grabbing a refreshing drink under the sun, or scoring a bite to eat, all you need to do is tap your wristband to use your Shells. It really couldn't be easier or faster, meaning you've got more time to enjoy the event, and party on the sand.

So get ready early for Ostend Beach 2018, and load up with Shells and save NOW.

The Brazilian Barbecue Party Coming to Ostend Beach Festival
Known for bringing together big names of international gastronomy around live fire, great food and a big party, Churrascada -- Brazil's first International Barbecue Festival -- is preparing to land in Antwerp.

But before it does, you can be the first to try it at Ostend Beach Festival 2018.

Inspired by the Richard Wrangham quote "Fire made us humans", Churrascada ( pronounced 'shoo-haas-kah-da') was born in São Paulo, Brazil, with the aim of showcasing gastronomy to the world in its crudest, most primitive form: no more or no less than just fire and food. The festival gathers well-known names in the Brazilian and international gastronomy scene around live fire pits, taking chefs out of their comfort zone and into another world, to prove that ancient cooking tradition produces not only great food, but also friendships and community around fire. The big barbecue party quickly to grew to be referenced frequently in the international culinary world, with over hundreds of thousands of followers all around the planet.

Churrascada (Brazilian for "Barbecue Party) is a unique and festive experience. Since its inception in 2015, it has brought together some of the biggest names in the barbecue world including John Teaser (US), Richard Turner (UK), Renzo Garibaldi (Peru), Neil Rankin (UK), Juan Gaffuri (ARG), Maksut Askar (TUR) and of course local favourite Hendrik Dierendonk from Belgium. This coming September, Churrascada prepares to land in Belgium in partnership with Squid Events, and through this partnership festival goers will have the chance to try it first at this year's Ostend Beach Festival.

"Brazil is absolutely crazy about barbecue. It's the weekly moment where family and friends, rich or poor, gather to celebrate life. We have been doing it for ages, so our techniques evolved beyond the grill. For example, cooking low and slow (for a long time and at considerably low temperatures) over the open ground fire is one of the local specialties, resulting in one of the juiciest meats one can taste and a beautiful display of barbecue mastery. If we are to eat meat, we should do only sustainably and valuing quality over quality. That is what churrascada is all about." Says Gustavo Bottino, the festival's founder and curator.

More than a gastronomic festival, Churrascada is a place to enjoy for an entire day, listen to great music, make new friends, and form bonds with old friends. After all, gathering around fire feeds not only our stomachs, but also our souls. Around fire, meals are transformed into a source of joy and pleasure. Chefs are challenged with the creation of tasting portions including the main protein and the sauces and sides to be paired with. Clients pay an inclusive ticket including food, beverages (both alcoholic and otherwise), as well as eight hours of music.

"I am sure the techniques and energy I saw in Brazil will dazzle Belgium's festival goers. It's different than anything people have ever seen in Europe." adds Hendrik Dierendonk, Belgium's most prominent Butcher and an advocate of sustainable meat consumption.

However, the festival is definitely not only about meat. Plant-based food creations play a big part in the festivities with chefs showing their abilities to turn plant based creations into something special with the heat of charcoal, wood and smoke.

Remember, Belgium's first taste of this Brazilian wonder can only be found at this year's Ostend Beach festival. Final Wave #3 tickets on sale now, secure yours here.

10 Tracks We Can't Wait To Hear At Ostend Beach 2018
With our ninth event on the sand only around three months away (close, right?), we thought it's time to do a little feature on some of the epic tracks that we're likely to hear on the beach at Ostend Beach 2018, that we're seriously looking forward to hearing.

Of course, we could have gone on to 30, 40, or 50 tracks with all the incredible talent we have lined up for you this year (and in case you haven't yet seen the full lineup, check it out here), though we thought it was wise to keep it at a short-and-snappy list of only ten. However, that doesn't mean your fave track - whether it be Green Velvet's "Flash", or Marco Bailey's "Red Tape" - doesn't deserve to be here as well.

Before you start getting into the full list, remember that this is your last chance to secure a discounted Wave #3 ticket to Ostend Beach 2018, before we go to final pricing. With only a small limited number available, now is the time to grab yours here while you still can.

But without any further ado, here's ten tracks we're looking forward to seeing at Ostend Beach 2018...

BIZZEY - "EWA"



CAMELPHAT - "PANIC ROOM"



CLAPTONE - "UNDER THE MOON"



DAVIDE SQUILLACE - "THE BOOGIE MAN"



DJ LICIOUS - "TWISTED GAMES"



FRANKY RIZARDO - "DOWN"



GREEN VELVET - "SHMASH"



SEVN ALIAS - "PATSERGEDRAG"



WOODIE SMALLS - "PROBLEMS"



ZONDERLING - "LEE"

6 Reasons Ostend Beach Festival 2018 Is Not To Be Missed
With only a little over 3.5 months to go until the ninth edition of our epic dance party on the beach, we thought we’d share a few tidbits on what is going to make this year’s edition of the world’s greatest beach festival not to be missed.

So without any further ado, here are six reasons you should be making sure you to secure your ticket to Ostend Beach 2018 as soon as you can. Especially so you don’t miss out on special Wave #3 pricing

1. BEACH VIBES

You could spend this summer sweating in a field, or some standard warehouse rave. But we can all admit we’d rather have our toes in the sand with the sun shining down through the bluest of skies while we dance the weekend away in style. Right?

2. THE EPIC LINEUP

In case you haven’t yet feasted your eyes on the full 2018 we dropped a shirt while ago, it’s a big one. With local and international names like Claptone, Felix Da Housecat, Art Department, Dimaro, Green Velvet, Marco Bailey, Rodhad, Camelphat, and many more in attendance, it’s going to be one to remember. Check out the full details here.

3. GREEN VELVET’S RETURN

Green Velvet, the man himself, has been an institution on our sandy shores for the last five years, and we’re incredibly excited for him to bring back his magic for the sixth time at Ostend Beach 2018. There’s never a dull moment when the neon-haired house aficionado takes the stage, and we know this year won’t be an exception.

4. WE’RE THE WORLD’S #1 BEACH FESTIVAL

Seriously, we’re not just saying that. In 2017, Pulse Radio named us the number one beach festival on the entire planet, and we’ve only gotten bigger and better since then. So whether you’re coming from within Belgium, Europe, or coming from across the glittering sea, you know you're in for an epic weekend.

5. BRING YOUR FRIENDS AND SAVE SOME CASH

For the first time this year, we’re adding in group ticket purchases that’ll help you save cash when you buy five tickets in a package, you’ll get the sixth for free - a total saving of 20%. So don’t delay, grab yours now while you still can at Wave #3 pricing.

6. PARTY ALL WEEKEND WITHOUT LEAVING THE FESTIVAL

If heading home, or a hotel doesn’t sound like your idea of a way to keep the night going strong, Ostend Beach’s dunes camping may be the best way for you to rest your head this festival weekend. Situated next to a 16th century fort close to the festival site, to call it one of the most picturesque places on Earth for a festival campsite may be an understatement.

Think of something we missed? Let us know on Facebook or Instagram.

We can’t wait to see you on the beach this July. To keep up to date with all the details, be sure to keep updated via our Facebook event.
